Injustice 2 Review

Comic book superheroes make for good fighting game characters. Most of them come in with defined fighting styles, strengths, and weaknesses that can help define a set of moves. Marvel’s been doing it with some regularity over the years, to the point where each character comes in with certain expectations about the sorts of moves they should probably have. Now that NetherRealm has delivered a followup to Injustice: Gods Among Us, a similar cadence and set of expectations is getting established for DC’s roster. Injustice 2 is a hard-hitting game that makes its cast of heroes and villains feel important, both with the way they fight and also with the wide range of modes and options that help make the game a good fit for wide variety of players.
